It's hard to imagine this truly beautiful (inside & out) Long-Haired Dachshund in a high-kill shelter in Houston. A compassionate Farfel's rescuer saved Carly's life and nursed her body and spirit back to joy and well-being. It's now getting to the time when Carly is ready to be transported to her new life in Colorado. Although it will be terribly hard for Carly's Texas rescuers to say goodbye...they know that she will have a great life. The following is a description of Carly by her rescuers who love her so much:

--Carly is such a sweet pup just waiting to blossom. I've enjoyed watching her learn that the world can be a loving and positive place. Carly had a hard start - but now she's learning about treats, belly rubs and that she's a very valuable girl! She may very well be initially shy, but just give her a bit of time and you'll have a new best friend.

Carly loves the sunshine and playing outside...she has exactly the appropriate amount of energy for a 9 - 12 month old, 15 lb healthy pup. She would do great with a family who is home a lot to take walks, cuddle with and play together at the park or in the yard - she would love that! After she's had exercise and stimulation, she's ready to chill on the couch. Carly loves to snuggle, be petted and has been said to not get overly grumpy about very much. Her potentially gorgeous, shining hair appears to shed lightly and will require care...a periodic grooming and great nutrition would be perfect to keep her coat as beautiful and cottony-soft as it can be.

Carly appears to be fine with other dogs but appreciates those that are respectful of her smaller size. Carly has been great with my 14 and 15 year old daughters and me! I haven't seen her around smaller kids, so that's an unknown. She's excellent with my mom, but might be a bit puppyish for a very advanced senior.

Carly is a truly smart, very loving...and often very comical pup - true to her breeds!! What a gem of a best friend for a family with older kids or retirees who want to include a very cute and fun dog in their lives. Copper has the potential to be an exceptional and loyal companion. I know that Farfel's is very excited to participate in finding this special Doxie/Terrier her forever family.

Carly appears to have a small cherry eye in one eye. By definition a cherry eye is a very simple issue involving the weakening of anchoring tissue on an ocular gland that's sometimes referred to as a third eyelid In dogs. This third eyelid plays a role that promotes oxygen supply and tear production to the eye. When working correctly, the third eyelid stays tucked away and out of sight. However, when anchoring tissue is not fully doing its job, this third eyelid can protrude from behind the eye and will be visible as a red or pink mass that partially obscures the corner of the eye. This is not a grave situation and can be fixed through massage or a minor procedure that Farfel's will pay for if our Denver vet is used.

Carly will be arriving on transport in Denver in early April. If interested in this best friend who is so full of love and personality, please fill out an application at and submit to or fax to 303-443-7730.

About Farfel's Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We own a pet boutique named Farfel's Farm on Pearl Street in Boulder, CO. We have had the good fortune to find our niche in the Boulder community and experience success. We felt it very important to "pay it forward" in gratitude for our good luck. We couldn't think of a better endeavor than to save dogs who were out of time in the southern states, yet had been identified with great temperaments. We dedicate our efforts to their good health and ultimate wonderful, permanent homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Pets are transported from the southern states approximately twice per month. Almost 100% of the time, the dogs are spoken for as a result of adoption applications that can be referenced under Adoption at We study the applications. If the app indicates there is a match, followed up by a home visit and reference checks, the process moves to the next step. The adopter is committing to a 2-week foster (of course the dog can be returned at any time prior), and can then choose to finalize the adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adoptions start out as a 2-week mandatory foster period. During that time, Farfel's covers all vet issues if one of Farfel's rescue vets is used. We also serve as a support with trainers and behaviorists on board for questions. An Adoption Application and an Adoption Contract must be completed before any dog can begin their 2-week foster. Our average adoption fee runs about $395. This amount serves to cover vetting, spay/neuter, all vaccinations, heart worm testing, temperament testing and transport. Our dogs come from Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and rural Colorado.
